Another three day weekend so we all know that means 5/12 more attempted fabulosity (I think I'm getting worse at math) here at the ModSauce Ranch. While everyone else in the country was out doing fantastically patriotic things like getting shitfaced and losing appendages to colorful explosions while eating hamburgers Madame Sunday was home
not doing all kinds of important things.
There's no way to make this picture clever. It's just tragic.
For starters here's my guest bathroom that is in desperate need of well, everything and I can assure you that I had every intention of patching and sanding more walls because it is my specialty and ... hey... *sniff* ... is that bacon I smell? I LURVE bacon!! I better go investigate immediately...
But during intense bacon investigation the doorbell rang - it was my new mattress!!!
My guest room received a "new" mattress that I bought from a friend so if you come to the MS ranch for a slumber party you might get cooties (you probably would have gotten them anyway from the old one too). But now the shiny new mattress was just sitting there alone and naked. So sad... Of course I had to drop everything I was doing to go out and buy all kinds of awesome bed-makings and linens which are still in their bags or piled up in that chair like a snuggly rainbow. The excitement I had while purchasing them didn't carry over to washing them and actually putting them on the bed because there are still three weeks worth of towels to wash first which were waaaay more important because drying off with a roll of paper towels after each shower gets to be a real pain in the ass. I hope y'all ain't coming over any time soon, otherwise you'll have to make the bed yourself and grab your favorite decorative pillow from the pile to make it pretty. And then take if off to actually sleep on the bed... And yes that door still doesn't shut all the way. DON'T JUDGE ME!!!!!
Here are the old mattresses hanging out in the hall to add that special gritty urban crackhouse feel. They'll be there until I schedule the city to come pick them up and then drag them to the curb. In the meantime I just have to walk through the dining room with the loads of towels I'm washing. No big deal - I bet I have at least a month or two before that gets old.
FUCK!! I keep running into this box of random shit that's hanging out in dining room!!! I think it's a collection of things to organize and donate and some toys I sat aside for my niece (hence the My Little Pony which is TOTALLY not mine) because why else would I have that pillow?? It IS kinda cute for a little girl... Shopping for girl things is pretty fun... Kinda like shopping for your own house which is exactly what I JUST did for my guest room! And since I AM (barely) a design blogger I think I'll go write a post about it right now!!!
I was actually compiling an award-winning piece about
Wait did you say it’s free…??
[MS sidebar: The Madame needs some kind of
So I'm on the internet figuring out how to get a "free" roof when I remember I have to sell some furniture on craigslist. However what started out as quick listing of an old table turned into an hour long laugh-fest involving a few glasses of wine, an inordinate amount of shameless losers for a city this size and some disgusting pictures all courtesy of the 'casual encounters' sextion. (That was a typo but I'm leaving it like dlisted.)
As I finished off the bottle I thought it would be a good time to go to the recycling center because my storage room is reaching maximum capacity of glass bottles and I love the earth.
But look what I saw while loading the car - my arch nemesis!! This piece of shit stump that taunts my every waking minute!
A 15 foot cypress fell this winter and I already chopped that bitch up but this stump is proving more difficult. Maybe it was the wine talking but I knew I finally had the balls to rip that thing out of the ground! RAAAWWWRRR!!! *flex girl biceps*
You know I can't really see well because all the sunlight is blocked by these damn limbs!
Thanks a lot asshole redneck neighbors who just let their jungle grow over my fence. Now I have to trim your overgrowth before I can tackle my own problems and even though the bible doesn't say "love thy neighbor and do their yardwork" I think Jesus would approve.
But on the way to get the Hedge Trimmer of Amazing Awesomeness I was reminded of this:
You think you're so cute, huh, Morning Glory? Taking over everything in my yard. I don't care how adorable you look trying to hug that broom handle up top you're still a weed that's making my life a living hell!! I'll teach you to mess with this Madame!! *flexes girl bicep again*
You know all this flexing is making me tired. I think I'm going to go take a nap...
Oh look at the time! I believe it's time to go out and ogle some rednecks making colorful explosions while getting shitfaced (them and me). Think I'll wear these lovelies I picked up while shopping for bedding:
See this weekend was full of fabulosity after all! I have to walk like Peggy Bundy but who cares?!
I just shut the door to the guest bathroom as I walked around the mattresses in the hall on my way out.
